Here's an arts organization that makes a whole town happy! Whoever thought march in Vermont could be so much fun and so enlightening? The folks who run Focus on Film and the Green Mountain Film Festival put on 10 days of films and events that keep MOntpelier's downtown filled with lively discussion. The buzz is electric, the films range from hilarious to thought-provoking and the speakers add depth and sparkle to it all. Local nonprofits sponsor films so they get their messages out to a wide audience at the same time.

Focus on Film, parent of the Green Mountain Film Festival in Central Vermont, is one of the unusual arts organizations, in that it is solidly community-based. the input is city-wide (Montpelier, Vt) if not state-wide and a bit beyond. I've been one small part of the exciting growth of this festival from a local effort to a regional force in film. One of the perks for a film lover in this endeavor is seeing a lot of independent and documentary films one otherwise would not have access to. The educational aspect is very strong, for filmmakers and knowledgeable speakers often accompany the screenings. It's great fun for those of us engaged in the festival, and brings together an amazingly diverse group of workers behind the scenes, people with skills beyond normal expectations.

Quite wonderful, smart and skilled and devoted.

I don't think it needs $10 million. With some more money it could expand the number of its venues, could expand the range of choices (e.g., shipping foreign films prints is costly), it might expand into competitive categories, and move to support Vt. film

Focus on Film is a non-profit in the smallest capital, Montpelier, Vermont. It provides a dynamic and wonderful film festival for 10 days every year that enriches our community and brings people together with unique and sometimes rarely seen films. The Green Mountain Film Festival is a welcome addition to our Vermont "mud season" and people look forward to it for months ahead.
